Public sector banks disbursed a record Rs 4.91 lakh crore of loans during the festive month of October and November, the finance ministry said on December 3.

In a bid to boost consumption and revive the economy, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in September had asked banks to reach out to customers and signal their willingness to lend following all prudential norms.

Under her direction, outreach camps or loan melas were conducted across 374 districts across the country to improve credit delivery and support the needs of the economy, with particular focus on MSMEs, NBFCs, corporates, retail and agriculture sector borrowers, without compromising prudential lending.
